Hotel is in a decent location and quiet. The hotel does not have a restaurant and only serves a Chinese focused breakfast. There are a few restaurants nearby and if you like Western food, the only choice maybe a KFC. Limited knowledge in of English by the front office staff and failed to give me a wake up call at...

This hotel is quite adequate for a budget hotel in its price range. You can't pay budget prices and reasonably expect a 5-star experience. I'd consider staying here again. It's well-suited for those arriving on a flight into PVG after 11 PM, since it's relatively close to the airport (almost all public transport closes down early, and taxi prices rise).... More

The rooms were nice with English channels and other stuff. Don't recommend you to ask for help from the staff. I asked for a bag, they didn't even understand. Couldn't ask for any help for directions or traveling anywhere. When I had a problem all they did is talked together in Chinese and laughed at me. No manners at all.... More

Everything was spot on, world class and absolutely clean rooms at a decent price. Short distance to Walmart and KFC. Friendly stuff. Forex machine in the lobby. Breakfast was a little monotonous but edible and at least included cereal. They give you a hotel details card which you can give cab drivers to return you to hotel. Wifi functional and... More

Its a good hotel and the services are also excellent. Only thing that I think to be improved is to take care off restaurant menu. Hotel management should really take care of muslim guests and arrange for some halal food there in breakfast menu.
